Olivier Giroud scores yet another stunner 0

Fans and critics alike have questioned the ability of the men that have led the line for Arsenal in recent years as they have been apparently crying out for a top quality striker.

Indeed, the fans have had to remain contented as Tottenham have seen the rise of Harry Kane, while Chelsea have recently switched between two world-class strikers in Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata.

Arsenal recently brought in French striker Alexandre Lacazette and the early indications are that he will become a very good player, but he needs time to properly adjust to the physical nature of the Premier League.

It only took one moment of magic for Arsenal to seal victory against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday evening as they maintained their 100% start to their Europa League campaign.

Indeed, one high-quality moment was all that the game got, with the two sides playing out a drab affair that rarely threatened to explode into life. Ultimately, it was the type of game that will have suited Arsene Wenger, with the manager probably happy that his side had scored a goal and kept a clean-sheet following their awful loss to Watford.

Arsenal have been suffering from a torrid time in the league with their campaign threatening to derail at this early stage. A 2-1 defeat to Watford destroyed the momentum they had been building and has caused many to once again label the club as being in crisis.

They now face a test in the Europa League against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday as they look to maintain their 100% record in the competition. However, it will not be easy for Arsenal as morale is clearly low, while the players are in poor form themselves.

Arsenal crashed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Watford last weekend as the momentum they had been building since the start of September vanished. Their loss was the culmination of profligacy up front and poor defending, with the Gunners unable to hold onto a one-goal lead.

The defeat has left Arsenal nine points short of Manchester City at the top of the table and they face a monumental challenge to try and cut that gap, with City looking a class apart in the current campaign.

Arsenal are in huge need of a much-needed win over Everton at the weekend following their awful 2-1 defeat at the hands of Watford.

The Gunners currently sit in sixth place in the league with 13 points, and they are already nine points behind Manchester City at the top. Following a good run of form where they were unbeaten following a 4-0 loss to Liverpool on August 27th, they somehow conspired to waste all of their gathered momentum in classic Arsenal style.

Arsenal’s loss to Watford on Saturday revealed a number of weaknesses in the London side. Their defence was alarmingly fragile as they were punished for their lack of backbone in the final moments via a Tom Cleverley strike at the death.

Further forward, they were unable to take a number of chances as their profligacy ultimately cost them. In particular, Mesut Ozil spurned a glorious chance to give Arsenal breathing space as he wasted a one-on-one situation by shooting straight at the goalkeeper.

Arsenal were blindsided by a very poor loss at the hands of Watford at the weekend as they went down 2-1. The Gunners had been building up ahead of steam in recent weeks with a number of good wins and solid performances seeing them back into a position in which they may have been able to challenge in the league but, in true Arsenal style, they wasted their momentum.

Now, they face a massive task to get their Premier League season back on track following that loss. They are immediately given the chance to get that defeat out of their system on Thursday with a Europa League clash against Red Star Belgrade.

Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars is set for a return to London next summer when he is expected to take up a director of football role at the Emirates.

The 44-year-old Dutch legend made 141 appearances and scored 40 goals for the Gunners in three years he spent in London between 1997 and 2012. Having served as Ajax’s director of football since the summer of 2012, Marc Overmars is now heading back to London to take over a number of Dick Law’s duties.

Arsenal fell to a damaging 2-1 defeat at the hand of Watford on Saturday as their Premier League challenge took another blow.

The game itself will be remembered for a contentious penalty decision, with Richarlison going down easily and winning a spot-kick, which Troy Deeney used to equalise. Tom Cleverley then smashed home the winner in injury time as Arsenal were undone yet again.

Following a good run of form in which Arsenal had not been beaten since their 4-0 loss to Liverpool on August 27th, this defeat has been alarmingly damaging to the Gunners. Fans and critics alike have lambasted Arsenal who missed the chance to close the gap on Manchester United in second following their draw with Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger in hot water with the FA 0

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger entered the referee’s room after the Gunners’ defeat at Watford where an angry exchange between the Frenchman and Neil Swarbrick occurred.

Arsenal manager could now face charges from the FA after making his feelings over his team’s 2-1 last-gasp defeat.

The Gunners took the lead through Per Mertesacker after 39 minutes but the home side managed to overturn the deficit through a 70th-minute penalty and Tom Cleverley’s stoppage-time pounce.

Arsene Wenger was mad over the decision to award a penalty to Watford after Richarlison went down under pressure from Hector Bellerin. The Watford summer signing is also under investigation from the FA for a possible dive and could face a two-game ban.
